You've got to be freakin' kidding me.... I got rear-ended today... what a way to end my first week back to work... Thank god traffic was backed up, so we were going really slow, but still, my head jerked forward and right away - pain... in my neck and then the headache started again... I just got rid of a headache that lasted for two days. And now my muscles are starting to spasm. I'm not sure if I should go to the hospital to get checked out, but I'm not really feeling up to having to sit and wait for hours at the ER. I have an appointment with a neurologist on Monday anyways. I just can't believe it, what a jerk, because I know he just wasn't paying attention. Anyways, that's my Friday, hope everyone else is having a better day!

  • I hope you're OK! Please get checked out, that really stinks!!!! Feel Better!
  • I would say yes..get an X ray...better to be on the safe side with this considering you are less than 2 months out.Document.

    I hope that you are ok and that your headache isn't too bad!
  • Thanks, after a sleepless night, and just getting angrier at the situation, I think I might have to go today. But I do have the pain under control now, although at the expense of being a little stoned, I have to admit. I hate having to take percocet, and it usually takes at least 3 pills (1 every 3-4 hours) before it kicks in (I don't take them every day). I hate this feeling. I'm so tired... and pissed off... and I guess a little whiney now too, sorry. It's just that I was having a decent day yesterday with a tolerable pain level til that happened, and was hoping I'd have some quality time with my boyfriend this weekend that we could go out and do something, and this idiot ruined it all...
